Lamar Jackson’s pursuit for Super Bowl win gets massive lift with All-Pro addition

Ravens, Lamar Jackson, Justin Houston

The Baltimore Ravens have made a huge move on Saturday that should have Lamar Jackson through the roof. They play in a tough AFC North division and will need all of the help they can get if they hope to win a Super Bowl this year. According to Adam Schefter, the Ravens have reached an agreement to sign former All-Pro Justin Houston.

Houston surprisingly didn’t gain much traction in the early portion of free agency. However, as the season approaches, he was receiving some offers worth much more money. Instead, Houston reached out to the Ravens and chose to sign a cheap deal to help Baltimore with their Super Bowl push.

Lamar Jackson has received criticism in the past for not performing well in the postseason. However, he’s still one of the best quarterbacks in the league and gives the Ravens their best chances of winning. The front office has made big moves this offseason, giving Baltimore a stacked roster this year.

After acquiring Justin Houston, Baltimore might become the favorites to win the NFC North. The Cleveland Browns and Pittsburgh Steelers are both playoff contenders, but the Ravens might have too much for their division rivals to handle. Baltimore heads into the 2021 season with an elite rushing attack, improved receiving core, and what should be a top-five defense.

The Ravens are not messing around this year, as Justin Houston brings another unique element to the defense. With guys like Calais Campbell and Derek Wolfe already on the defensive line, the Ravens arguably have the best front seven in the league. This defense will be tough to score against, as they can stop the run, attack the quarterback, and have solid pass coverage in the secondary. Keep a close tab on the Ravens this year, as Lamar Jackson and company should be making a ton of noise in Baltimore this year.
